Yes, you are required to purchase from the Preferred Vendor Contract. This vendor has been designated as the "Preferred Vendor" for AU for this particular commodity as the result of a competitive bid process. In general, making purchases outside the contract shouldn't be necessary. We understand from time to time there may be a justifiable reason to purchase off contract through a different vendor. If that need arises, since you are potentially violating the bid law, please attach a note of justification to the voucher/purchasing card recon. In some cases, PBS may follow up with you, in other cases, the Preferred Vendor may follow up with you.
Yes. Normal procurement thresholds apply to the purchase of MRO products. You may use your Purchasing Card to order/pay for the items against this contract as long as the amount being purchased is less than $5000.00.
